Overview

Una novela que revela la fuerza transformadora de la imaginación y su capacidad para construir nuevas existencias.
Manuel Rivas - Presidente del Jurado
Desde su terraza, Samuel observa el trajín cotidiano como quien está de vuelta sin haber llegado a nada. Él es una persona que no se compromete con nada ni con nadie. Una madrugada, alguien le anuncia por teléfono que Clara ha muerto en un accidente. Aunque Samuel no conoce a ninguna Clara, decide asistir a su funeral, empujado por una mezcla de curiosidad y aburrimiento.
Fascinado por la posibilidad de suplantar a la persona con la que lo confunden, Samuel se inventa una relación con Clara para Carina, la hermana de ésta, y entra en un juego del que va perdiendo el control; al poco tiempo no tiene nada claro si el amor que está inventando lo va a salvar o a acabar de hundirlo.
Una novela que combina la intriga del thriller con la inmediatez del reportaje. Narrada en primera persona, a través de una voz cercana, inquisitiva e irónica, el protagonista va desvelando las imposturas del amor y al mismo tiempo su absoluta necesidad.
Siempre he evitado la palabra amor. Un sustantivo devaluado, una moneda tan usada que ha perdido el relieve, de manera que se puede acariciar entre los dedos sin percibir imagen alguna; una moneda que no me atrevería a dar en pago por miedo a ser mirado como un estafador.

    Muy bien escrito, te atrapa

    Desde que empiecé a leer empecé a hacer conjeturas sobre la trama, muy buen libro. Ya que lo lees, entiendes porque ganó el premio Alfaguara.

    Trata de la manera de reinventar la relación con los demás, nues

    Trata de la manera de reinventar la relación con los demás, nuestras relaciones amorosas... es una invitacion a repensar el concepto amor. Es bastante más real a las típicas novelas de amor, digamos que habla del amor en la actualidad, el amor de hoy.
